Hi i´m looking for a mag motor to work with Bolex EBM. I see that there are MM and WM motors. Which are better? what kind of difference?

Thanks in advance

WM has variable speeds.


And only the WM will do single exposures. And the older one may be faulty with only one motor running and you would never notice it. So go for the WM.

Cheers, Dave
